Sweden's Frida Hansdotter won gold in the women's slalom as defending champion and clear favorite Mikaela Shiffrin of the United States failed to even reach the podium.Shiffrin has utterly dominated women's slalom, winning four of the last five World Cup season titles and the last three World Championships, as well as the gold in Sochi four years ago.Hansdotter's combined time from the two legs was 1 minute 38.63 leaving her just 0.05 seconds ahead of Switzerland's Wendy Holdener, who had led after a brilliant first leg run.Shiffrin had been aiming to become the first skier to defend an Olympic slalom title but she looked flat in her first leg and needing to make up time in her second run, she was actually slower.
